Repaired With Gold

In Japan, broken objects are often repaired with gold. The flaw is seen as a unique piece of the object’s history, which adds to its beauty. Taken from Facebook post

A green vase with a large crack repaired with gold is a lovely visual. Rather than hidden, the crack is accentuated, giving the vase character and a beautiful design. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could visualize our lives like this vase? Rather than hiding or concealing the “cracks in our life”, our loses, our mistakes, our injuries, we turn them into something beautiful and useful…renewed resilience, greater empathy, strength of character.

Becoming mature, joy-filled, peaceful people means embracing everything life brings us…cracks and all.

Affirmation: I embrace the “cracks” in my life.

Coaching questions: Visualize the cracks in your life filled with gold, shining bright and beautiful. How does this visual feel? What do you need to do to give up the shame, sadness, why-me, anxiety, fear in your life and turn it into “gold”?
